So I am torn between the childish me that played with voltron and dinosaurs, the other part of me that is mischevious and treachourous. So what should I start Skaven or Lizard Men.

Well, all I can say to you good sir is:



Although seriously, we should probably point out that everyone that has replied to you so far is a Lizardmen player- you might want to talk to some Skaven players/ non biased third parties before you decide.

EDIT: I'm very interested in how you intend to justify cold-blooded creatures originating from a frozen wasteland...

I assume lizardmen are warm blooded? If not they would go into hibernation when exposed to a cold environment. So, really, it would be sleepy lizardmen of the frozen north.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

How do you represent sleepy lizards? They're already I1, how much slower can they get.

Lizardmen are indeed cold blooded. In fact, the special rule "Cold Blood" is central to what makes them so awesome.

Yup lizards are from the steamy jungles of Lustria for the most part and are indeed coldblooded, therefore they need the sun for warmth and are shit out of luck if they are from the frozen North. scaly popsicles anyone?

I chose rats, partly as everyone and their dog seems to have lizardmen and rats are going to be well served with IoB and all the new range.
